Brooklyn Dodgers baseball legend Jackie Robinson, is forever linked in American history as the player who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. When in 1947, he became the first African American to take the field.

He became heroic, and part because he was an electrifying player and for his role in opening up the doors to racial equality.
